HackCLE Present's the 2016 Tech Inclusion Summit + Career Fair

 

 

 Greetings,

 

I'm writing to invite you to Cleveland's first ever Tech Inclusion Summit and Career Fair. We are doing intentional outreach to underrepresented people in the tech workforce to invite job seekers and potential career changers to join us Tuesday, June 28, 2016 for this free event.

 

Hack Cleveland (an org I've co-foundered) is presenting this event in partnership with a Bay Area organization called TechUP. TechUP has been hugely successful connecting underrepresented (Women, Black & Latino, LGBTQ, Veterans, People with Disabilities) to employers seeking tech talent and institutions building pipelines through training folks in tech skills. 

 

We will have a coding bootcamp showcase (Tech Elevator, WeCanCodeIT, Akron Women In Tech, Cleveland Codes) and an "Hour of Code." During this time you can meet people who have learned to code and started new careers in the digital economy / IT, plus get an intro to computer programming with instructors from Tech Elevator. 

 

You do not need a technical background to attend or participate. We seek IT professionals, job seekers, and folks interested in transitioning into a tech career. 

 

Job seekers and career changers can benefit from a free resume review workshop and professional head shots which they can use in their job hunt. Additionally, folks will have the opportunity to meet with technical recruiters, and HR professionals from the largest tech employers in our region: Hyland Software, Progressive and more. 

 

Stay longer into the program for lighting talks from startup founders and real discussions on workforce development for IT and diversity and inclusion in the workplace. The line up of events, networking, and discussion is worth the while of anyone interested in a new career or folks interested in networking with people/employers who have embedded diversity and inclusion into their workplace culture.
